How do I establish Firmware on my K10D ?

Sorry for asking, but HOW do I establish what firmware is installed on my new K10D ? I can't seem to find anything mentioned about this matter in the comprehensive instruction manual (I admit it's fairly inscrutable in places) and expect I've missed the necessary paragraph somewhere. Any advice gratefully received etc........

Turn the camera on while holding down the menu button.

Dear Alex

Thanks so much for your incredibly quick reply. It turns out my camera is only at v 1.0, so I shall have to bite the bullet and upgrade shortly to v 1.3 ASAP. I much appreciate your assistance from "across the pond" so to speak !

Kindest regards

I also just got a K10D and it was at Ver 1.00. I did the upgrade to 1.3 and it was really no problem. Make sure your battery is fully charged and forllow the directions on the Pentax web site.

Also, when you extract the files from the firmware download, it will also extract a readme text file that also has ALL the directions. You don't have to have the web site open or print it out.
